Arizona Senior Championships Day 3

Wild night in Tucson!! Well it was hot and wild in Tucson tonight. The night started off over 105 degrees so even getting up on the blocks was kind of hot on the feet.


Chris Deegan Second at Fina UltraMarathon 32km Race in Lac St. Jean, Quebec!

In only his 2nd ever UltraMarathon Race, Chris Deegan, representing Australia (and UVPCS!) finished second overall this year!  As a Fina race series, this race always attracts some of the Ultra-Distance swimmers in the world, and to come 2nd is quite the achievement!  Chris will come away from the race with 4500 American dollars in prize money (with perhaps a 1000$ bonus if the results show he had the fastest 500m in the race, to be determined), and a lot of pride!  Chris swam with the pack until the eventual winner, Marcel Schouten from the Netherlands, decided to break away from the pack
